It was released directly to video and was nominated at the 26th Saturn Awards for "Best Home Video Release". In late 2010, the production of a fourth film in the series was discussed, but, as of August 2012, further work on this possibility has not been revealed. In late 2013, it was reported; the prequel is set in Mexico in the early 1900s and begins with an American author, Ambrose Bierce, experiencing a nightmare in which he dies at the hands of Pancho Villa. Bierce wakes and talks to a local bartender about his intentions to join Pancho Villa's revolutionary army, he joins a stagecoach transporting a newly-wed couple and Mary Newlie, who are traveling to Mexico to preach Christianity. Meanwhile, Johnny Madrid, a dangerous local outlaw, escapes from the gallows and kidnaps his hangman's beautiful nineteen years old teenage daughter, Esmeralda.

Madrid receives assistance from Reece, a young woman who wants to become Madrid's apprentice as an outlaw. With the hangman and a local posse on their trail, Madrid meets with his gang, they rob Bierce's stagecoach because of Reece's belief that Bierce possesses an invaluable object. The gang doesn't find anything of value, with Bierce claiming he is the invaluable object, as he intends to join with Pancho Villa. Annoyed by this, Madrid leaves Reece hanging in the desert, she is found by the posse. As night falls, all the parties coincidentally seek shelter in an isolated inn that serves as a brothel, they meet Ezra Traylor, a businessman heading to the U. S; the hangman is the only one who knows that the establishment is run by a group of vampires led by the high priestess, who targets Esmeralda. As night falls John gets into a fight with one of Madrid's men; the vampires reveal themselves, lock the exit and attack the patrons.

John is forced to kill her; the patron who escaped with them hides a bite. As they continue through the catacombs, he bites John. John kills the patron.

The group ends up back at the bar entrance, only to find Quixtla and the vampires in wait for them, she reveals that Esmeralda is a half-human, half-vampire princess, Santanico Pandemonium, the daughter of Quixtla and the hangman, Mauricio. The hangman had taken her away in the hope of raising her as a normal human but, thanks to his mistreatment and Madrid's kidnapping, she has been led back to Quixtla.

Yahiko Mishima

Yahiko Mishima was a Japanese track and field athlete who competed in the 1912 Summer Olympics. Together with the marathon runner Shizo Kanakuri he was the first Olympic competitor for Japan. Mishima was the son of Viscount Mishima Michitsune, an important official in the Meiji government of Japan, his elder brother, Yatarō Mishima was the 8th governor of the Bank of Japan. Mishima's father died, he attended the Gakushuin Peer’s School, followed by Tokyo Imperial University, where he majored in law. However, Mishima’s talents lay in sports, he was active in college baseball, horseback riding, boating and skating, participating in numerous competitions, his height of 170-cm gave him an advantage at a time when the average Japanese men’s height was around 150-cm. During the domestic qualifying trials for the 1912 Stockholm Olympics held at what became Haneda Airport, Mishima was selected to be part of the referee committee, but decided to participate in the event as a contestant instead, taking first place in the 100, 400 and 800 meter races, placed second in the 200 meter race.

Although a number of qualifying events had taken placed, support for the Olympics was not forthcoming from the Japanese Ministry of Education, the budget was limited to sending only two athletes to Stockholm. Mishima and long-distance runner Shizo Kanakuri were the two selected, travelled to Stockholm over the Trans-Siberian Railway. On July 6, 1912, Mishima served as a standard bearer for the opening ceremonies of the 1912 Olympics; the same afternoon, although he tied his personal record, he was eliminated in the first round of the 100 meters competition by more than one second, coming in last place. He came in fifth place in the first heat of the 200 meters competition. In the 400 meters competition he advanced to the semi-finals in second place, but since there was only one other runner, this was last place, he defaulted the final race due to pain in his right leg. He left Stockholm before the closing ceremonies to visit Berlin, where he examined the grounds for the 1916 Summer Olympics, to purchase sports equipment not available in Japan, returning home only on February 7, 1913.

However, the 1916 Berlin Olympics were cancelled due to World War I, Mishima was unable to qualify for the 1920 Summer Olympics in Antwerp, Belgium. In 1913, Mishima joined the Yokohama Specie Bank, was assigned to its branch office in Tsingtao, where he remained until 1939, his death at his home in Meguro, Tokyo in 1954 was overlooked by the Japanese media.

It was directed from a screenplay by Tad Mosel, its theme song, "Dear Heart", was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song. Evie Jackson is a middle-aged, single postmaster from Ohio, attending a postmasters' convention at a New York City hotel. Outgoing and somewhat tactless, she has many friends but pines for a romantic relationship, one that will be more meaningful than the flings she has had with married conventioneers in previous years, she uses various means to make herself feel less lonely and more important, such as sending herself a welcome message and having herself paged in the hotel lobby. Harry Mork is a middle-aged womanizing former traveling salesman for a greeting card company, who now wishes to settle down. Harry has accepted a promotion to an office job in New York City, has gotten engaged to Phyllis, a middle-aged widowed housewife from Altoona, Pennsylvania.

Harry is staying alone in the same hotel as Evie while he starts his new job and finds an apartment, where Phyllis, still back in Altoona, will join him. While Harry is checking in, Phyllis's son Patrick arrives, seeking to bond with his new father. Harry is surprised to find that Patrick is not the young boy he had expected based on a photograph, but instead is an 18-year-old bohemian with a beard. Harry is mildly annoyed by Patrick's unexpected arrival and embarrassed by his casual attitude towards women and nudity after Patrick moves into Harry's hotel room with his purportedly platonic female friend, Émile Zola Bernkrand. Evie meets Harry when they are forced to share a dinner table in the crowded hotel restaurant, but Harry is more interested in buxom blonde hotel shop clerk June Loveland than he is in the overly friendly Evie, makes an excuse to leave for a tryst with June. Returning to the hotel, Harry meets Evie again in the lobby, where she is upset after escaping from the unwanted sexual advances of a strange man outside her room.

Harry escorts her back to her room and they make plans to go to the Statue of Liberty the next morning. However, the next morning Patrick shows up again wanting to spend the day with Harry, so Harry breaks his date with Evie to go look at apartments with Patrick and Zola. A disappointed Evie spends the day with a trio of older spinster postmasters, but cheers up when Harry returns, offering to take her to dinner and show her the apartment he rented in Greenwich Village. Evie optimistically thinks Harry is planning to reveal that the apartment is intended for the two of them to occupy, is crushed when she realizes that Harry is planning to live there with his soon-to-be wife, Phyllis. Harry takes Evie back to the hotel and impulsively kisses her, but Phyllis unexpectedly arrives from Altoona. So Harry goes to stay with her in the hotel across the street, while Evie sadly arranges to return to Ohio the next day, but Harry soon discovers that Phyllis does not want to live a happy domestic life with him in the old-fashioned apartment he rented.

Instead she wants to live in modern hotels with room service, where she won't have to cook or clean, to sleep in separate beds. She wants Harry to be a father figure to Patrick so she won't have to deal with him and his teenage problems. Harry realizes that he loves Evie, that Patrick and Phyllis need to spend more time with each other rather than with him, he breaks off his engagement and reunites with Evie at the busy train station just before she would have returned home.

G. Marshall and Eileen Heckart; the film had a budget of about $1.8 million. Principal shooting occurred from October 3 to November 22, 1963. Filming of the opening and closing scenes in Penn Station took advantage of just-commenced demolition process of the above-ground structures, it was Geraldine Page's first solo leading lady role. As production commenced, Glenn Ford's long-term relationship with actress Hope Lange was ending and she married producer Alan Pakula, leaving Ford heartbroken. Although production of Dear Heart was a positive one, Ford could not stop brooding over Lange. Angela Lansbury took the role of the materialistic but good-hearted Phyllis because it gave her an opportunity to work with Geraldine Page. Henry Mancini was hired to compose music for the film. Mancini felt, he wrote music for the song, but it lacked lyrics. Mancini contacted Johnny Mercer, unavailable. So Mancini turned to Ray Evans; the lyricists read the script, came up with the lyrics and title for the song based on their reading of Geraldine Page's character.

The film's original title was The Out-of-Towners. But Jay Livingston said that when Martin Manulis heard the theme song, he changed the title to Dear Heart. Warner Brothers was uncertain about. Mancini, who had a 50 percent interest in the film's theme song with Larry Shay
